A Pullman kitchen also is called a "single-line kitchen" because all of the appliances and countertops are placed along one straight wall, according to BUILD. Counter space is often limited to a small place on each side of the oven.
A Pullman kitchen works best in a small apartment where only one person cooks at a time and prepares simple meals, BUILD notes. The benefit of a Pullman kitchen is that most tools and appliances are within easy reach. Cooks can make the most of this small kitchen by mounting knives, dishracks or utensil holders in the vertical space above the appliances and countertops.
